A largely intact woodworking shop dating from the latter half of the 18th century, Sampson's shop was only recently re-discovered on the grounds of the Berrybrook School in Duxbury, MA. 

Filming Lowe will allow PEM to not only exhibit furniture made Nathan Gould, but also to showcase the process of making furniture in the 18th century.
